Warning!...lots of pictures

Here is the monster puppy. He has a ring frisbee in his mouth (and around his head...silly boy!) He is now 8 months old and at least 65 lbs. He is getting to be a big boy. My husband is missing him right now though. We took him to the vet for neutering and he is too active so they had to keep him to get the bleeding under control. It's been quiet around here since yesterday morning. We are picking him up tomorrow.
These are th Halema`uma`u Socks from the Loopy Ewe. I've been knitting on these yesterday and today between cleaning, laundry, and baking the ham and turkey.
Got this in the mail about a week ago. It's the last shipment of the year for the Socks That Rock sock club. I think I will cast these on next. I love the colors and it is perfect for Christmas.
Got this love yarn in the mail from Barbara Bretton, the author, of Romancing the Yarn blog. She is giving away yarns and I posted on this one and won! I cast on today for the One Row Scarf that the Yarn Harlot made using some handspun yarn. I'm liking how it is looking. Need to get a picture of that later this weekend.
This is the latest Feather & Fan dishcloth that I finished. I keep these in the car to work on when I have to wait very long in traffic.
I finished this one from MonthlyDishcloths yahoo group. It is called Illusion Candy Cane dishcloth as you can see from the picture.
Progress is still being made on the green Central Park Hoodie. I plan to get some knitting done on that one tomorrow.
We switched cellular phone companies back at the beginning of the month. This is an LG Shine that I got when we switched. I really love it except the ringtone is not loud enough for me to hear most of the time. Oh, well. I'm hoping my daughter Megan has some new ringtones she can put on it for me.

Hope everyone's Thanksgiving has been a good one. We will have one tomorrow and another on Sunday. Yippee!!! Gonna sign off for now, more laundry to do. TTFN!

Hopefully, more will follow soon.
